For years MOV has been one of the more popular video formats out there, but it has always had some compatibility issues. Because it was developed by Apple for use on QuickTime, there are some devices that don’t support it or require QuickTime or some other special media player to be used.
In contrast to MOV, MP4 is far more universally compatible – which is why you may want to convert your MOV videos to MP4 if you’d like to share them with others or watch them on various devices. Although you could use online platforms or free apps to convert your videos, most have lots of limitations – which isn’t the case with Movavi Video Converter.
Converting MOV to MP4 videos in No Time
By using Movavi Video Converter, you’ll be able to quickly convert any MOV video that you want to MP4. It is both easy and quick to set up, and the conversion itself will take almost no time either due to its ‘SuperSpeed’ technology.
Assuming you already have a MOV video that you want to convert, launch Movavi Video Converter then click ‘Add Media’ and select ‘Add Video’. That will enable you to add the video to the software, or alternatively, you could drag and drop the MOV file into the main working area if you prefer.
Once the video has been added, the next step is to set it to convert to MP4. To do that open up the ‘Video’ tab in the bottom area of Movavi Video Converter’s interface, and select the ‘MP4’ category. If you want you can choose any preset under that category based on the resolution you prefer, or if you intend to keep the original resolution you could pick the one labeled ‘Original Size’.
Last but not least, you may want to click on the ‘folder’ icon right next to the ‘Save to’ field and set the destination folder. After that, you can click ‘Convert’ at any time, and Movavi Video Converter will immediately start to convert your MOV to MP4. In most cases, it won’t take long to be done – just about the same amount of time it takes to copy and paste a video.
It should be noted that if you want you could add multiple videos and convert them all at the same time with Movavi Video Converter – rather than setting them up one by one. On top of that, you can also compress your videos, resize them using various methods, or adjust their settings and parameters.
In fact, Movavi Video Converter has other useful features that you can use to create animated GIFs, enhance the video quality, extract audio tracks, merge clips together, add captions, and more. Although for now, you may want to stick to converting your MOV videos to MP4 and making sure they are compatible – you should make it a point to try out the other features that it has up its sleeve at some point or other.
